Fright Night

The firemen and their family and friends go all out finding new and creative ways to scare crowds each year.

This year, the Palestine Firefighters Association and friends celebrates its 11th anniversary in its Fright Night production.

In a social media post made Tuesday, the Palestine Firefighters Association stated:

“With special precautions and a little bit of adjustment, we will be ready for our 11th annual spook season. We will be taking precautionary actions in regards to COVID; that in turn means we will be practicing social distancing as best as possible and still provide the best experience for our guests.”

The event is from 7:30 p.m. to midnight, Oct. 23, 24, 30 and 31.

Each year, the Palestine Firefighters Association's Fright Night creates a new haunting adventure inside the old garment factory, 3600 W. Oak Street, in Palestine in an effort to raise money for local food pantries.

The idea is to “scare out hunger.”

Tickets are $15, or $10 for visitors with two canned food items to donate to the local food bank.

All funds are used in the association's numerous charitable campaigns.

The Fright Night haunted house never disappoints, keeping people coming back for more, year-after-year.

In Halloweens past, those fearless enough to enter this house of horror encountered clowns, zombies, dolls, a morgue, an electric chamber, hazardous waste, cemetery, test facilities and other ghoulish apparitions.

The firemen and their family and friends go all out finding new and creative ways to scare crowds each year.

Throughout the 36,000 square-foot building awaits several theme rooms and creatures.

A new year, means new rooms, new layouts, new creatures.

The parking lot provides plenty of space, and actors even entertain in the waiting area.

Parents must accompany children 12 years old or under.
